Book Review--The Heart of Arcrea

I have an awesome, AWESOME book to review today! I pretty sure it's one all my readers would enjoy!

Genre: Medieval/fantasy
Author: Nicole Sager
Series: The Arcrean Conquest

Description: Set during a forgotten age of kings and queens, knights and nobles, wise-men and warlords, The Heart of Arcrea follows the story of Druet the blacksmith, who, hoping to free his father from an unjust imprisonment, sets out on a quest that will solve an ancient riddle and crown a man as Arcrea’s first king. A host of memorable characters join Druet on his mission of justice, but opposition quickly rises to test their level of commitment and their faith in God. Will the dangerous wilds of Arcrea and her seven oppressive lords succeed in bringing an end to Druet’s quest and crush forever the kingdom’s hopes for a just king?

Honestly, I think this is one of my favorite books! (I know, I say that a lot :)
The author has a way of writing that literally pulls you into the story and you can't set the book down! The other books in the series are just as good! I also LOVE that the gospel is woven throughout the books, but in a way that makes it feel natural. . .because it is. The main character as well as a lot of the other characters are always praying about their problems before taking action and then listening patiently for the answer.
While it does start out a little slow, the rest of the book more then makes up for it with the memorable as well as realistic characters,daring--, and then there's the time when--,and Druet gets--.Well, as you can see, if I say anymore I'll give away to much of the book! :) Definitely a book I would recommend to anyone!
(If you end up reading it, or have read it please tell me what you think/thought! :)
